It was noted on the news that one of these fires started from pyrotechnics used at a "Gender Reveal" Party. Such as dumbass American idea/concept and not the first time a large fire has resulted from such stupidity - this is the second gender reveal party to start a large fire.

Absolutely fantastic and well done to the crews for doing the right thing! Not an easy job but an outstanding result.

Well deserved - they say it is a fine line between a medal and a bollocking and I'm glad these guys fell the right side

THEY are heroes.

Praise the Lord that they weren't suffering from bone spurs.
